retreatforrent_AustriaLocation: Salzburg, Austria

The Details: Slightly cooler temps and smaller crowds make September a great time to explore the sites of Salzburg, from the Medieval and Baroque architecture of the Old Town city center to the area’s restorative hot springs. Opened in 1892, the Hôtel Bristol Salzburg is centrally located across the street from the home of the late composer Mozart. On-site restaurants include the stylish Sketch Bar & Lounge, with an inviting fireplace and coffee and homemade cakes during the day, and the upscale Polo Lounge, where the house sommelier can recommend fine wines to pair with Austrian delicacies like veal tartar with sautéed chanterelle mushrooms and beef tenderloin with foie gras.

Book It: From $261 per night,
